One Childhood - One Chance

Weekly News 13.10.2023

What a great week in Year 4!


In English this week, we finished reading our book – Leon and the Place Between. The children have created a play script of one of the scenes from the book. The children learnt the features of a play script and used drama to edit and improve their work. 

Next week, the children will be writing their own narrative in the style of Leon and the Place Between. 


Our Maths learning this week has continued to focus on multiplication and division. The children have been learning about the 7 and 9 times tables as well as multiplication strategies. 

Next week, we develop this learning further, multiplying and dividing by 10 and 100 and multiplying mentally. 


Our science learning continued this week with the children learning about noise pollution and creating fact-files about the topic. The week culminated with the children learning about methods of communication without sound. The children put their minds to learning a new skill, sign language. They learnt different greetings, colours and even how to spell out their names. Excellent work everyone!

Love to Learn

READING: Children in Year 4 are expected to read at home at least three times a week. It is important that the children bring in their reading records daily so that we can check in with progress and read with the children in school. Please read as often as possible at home. Thank you for your support.

MATHS: The children will now have received their Mathletics login details. Maths homework tasks will now be available on the website. Please also continue to practise times tables using TTRS.

THEMATIC:  This term, we would like you to tell us/show us how we hear sounds/what affects the pitch and volume of sounds/how vibrations travel through different materials.


The expectation of uniform is that hair is tied back if it is below the shoulders. Hoodies (apart from those provided by the school) are not permitted and children should be wearing school shoes, not trainers apart from on PE days. PE kit should be navy or black with their house colour t-shirt.

Tuesday afternoon is swimming for 4B and 4G

Thursday afternoon is PE
